16. Haters gonna hate.
There will always be people who’ll make fun of what you’re doing or just won’t understand it, and there’s not enough time in the day to spend engaging with them. Insults run the gamut from “old lady hobbyist” to “hipster bandwagon jumper” with total disregard of the fact that there are as many different kinds of knitters in the world as there are people (to paraphrase my favorite childhood book, Harriet the Spy). Just smile and nod and knit another row while they waste their time judging how other people spend theirs. Besides, you’ll be the one laughing when said haters FREEZE TO DEATH because they don’t have any cozy handmade mittens/gloves/sweaters next winter.
